By Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry makes his role in the school Christmas Play much BIGGER in this hilarious Early Reader story.
Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.
Horrid Henry is desperate to be Joseph in the school Christmas Nativity play. The trouble is, Miss Battle-Axe has made him the inn-keeper. There's only one thing for it - Henry's got to make his own part BIGGER!
